Taken from an early 1970's school cookbook. Very tasty, with ingredients that are about always around (except maybe the Butter Nut Vanilla).


  1. Cream together margarine, shortening, sugar, and salt.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time.
  3. Add 1/2 of flour, the milk (with enough water added to make 1 cup), then the rest of the flour.
  4. Fold in the vanilla.
  5. Pour in greased tube pan, and bake 1 hour 45 minutes, at 325°F, starting from a COLD oven.
  6. Do not open the oven door during baking.
  7. Remove from pan immediately.
